Messy Lob Hairstyle
The wavy lob has two big benefits: It’s short enough that it’ll never weigh you down, and the beachy texture provides an appearance of thickness. If you have naturally thin hair or are thinning, having longer strands actually accentuates your thinning, rather than camouflaging it, Rivera says. “Thinning hair people actually have more hair present towards the root/mid-lengths area and, the longer the length, the thinner it appears,” she says. “The messy lob accentuates the shape of the face and looks full from roots to ends.”
To create this look, wash and towel dry your hair. To start, use a texturizing spray throughout your hair to add lasting density, volume, and texture. Depending on your hair’s natural curl, either use your hands to scrunch your hair while it’s wet, or create beachy waves with a curling wand when it’s dry. Gently use your fingers to mess up the curls, and finish with hairspray.
